Last year, ConUHacks gave almost 400 students the opportunity to create and interact with students and tech industry professionals. This year, ConUHacks will be a 24 hour hackathon with 400+ participants. It will be held at Concordia University in the heart of downtown Montreal, Canada. The event is open to all university students that have a passion for creating things with technology!
Students will form teams of four to work on their project (or 'hack') for 24 straight hours. Projects are open format, which means that you can hack on web, mobile, desktop, or hardware applications. Company mentors will be available throughout the event for questions to make sure beginners and experts alike will have the help they need to successfully develop their project. All teams will demo their hacks at the end of the event and winners will be chosen by company mentors.
Absolutely nothing! :D Even the food is on us.
No problem! You can reach out to other participants on our Facebook Event to create a team of 4 before the event. We will also be hosting a team building session prior to the start of hacking on the day of the event. You may also hack solo if you wish.
Industry experts will browse the demos at the end of the event, asking questions and choosing their favorites. From these selections, the best-of-the-best will be compared and a select few will get the chance to present in front of everyone at the closing ceremony.

It’s a good idea to setup your computer with some development software such as an IDE (i.e. Android Studio, XCode), a version control tool (i.e. Git). You don't want to spend a large chunk of time downloading software at the event, do it beforehand!
No. All work on projects should be done at the event. You can read up on different APIs and frameworks but all code should be written during ConUHacks.
